About the property

High Design Meets Cozy Comfort! Family Friendly! Close to Conv.Ctr, WWII Museum!

Searching for a home that highlights the character of historic New Orleans yet beckons with luxurious amenities, thoughtful comforts, and stylish furnishings? Look no further than this exceptionally restored quintessential New Orleans Shotgun home!

From the double parlors styled for entertaining and enjoying the company of friends, to the private and restful two bedrooms, each with a queen size bed and luxuriously layered linens, you'll delight in returning home after days and nights spent exploring the city. A full restoration ensures modern function and amenities while historic pocket doors, mantels and original floors deliver the original historic character.

The Lower Garden District is a prime location within the city for visitors and business travelers alike. The Warehouse District, Garden District and French Quarter are easy to reach on foot. The house is one block to shops and restaurants on Magazine Street and 4 blocks (0.4mi) to the Street Car on St. Charles Ave. French Truck, a wonderful local roaster and coffee shop is 2 blocks from the house as is Barrel Proof bourbon bar and local Courtyard Brewery.

This is a very private, quiet, large "owner's unit" within a double shotgun house. There is a separate small one bedroom apartment on the left side of the home but this unit is three times the size and has access to both the front and back porches/patios. The two bedrooms are completely private (no pass through rooms like some shotguns) and the master has an en suite bath.

Plentiful free street parking can be found right in front of the home, a bonus in New Orleans!

Saints Fans (& Visitors)! Great convenient location for games and events at the Superdome or the Smoothie Center. The house is 1.3 mi to the Dome.

Attention Conventioneers! This home is so close to the Convention Center. You will love being a quick walk to a relaxing and comfortable home! By Google Maps calculation it is 0.6 mi walking distance to the main entrance (closer if you use one of the other entrances).

We provide an independent check-in process with a coded lockbox. No need to arrange a set time to meet us but we live on the block and are available if needed!

The front room has a sofa which converts to a comfortable twin size, creating a third bed. An additional queen air mattress can be set up to accommodate children or other guest(s) in one of the front rooms.

Some of the most enriching travel experiences center around feeling a personal connection to a place. Staying in this home in the Lower Garden District neighborhood is a unique way to experience New Orleans local culture and we provide a well-qualified locals list of favorite restaurants, music venues and experiences!

About Ro

I'm a historic preservationist and designer and live in the Lower Garden District with my young family. I love to travel for pleasure but also spent over a decade traveling domestically and internationally for a corporate job. As such, I understand a traveler's expectations for comfort and amenities but believe that true luxury travel is anticipating a guest's needs before they do. In my home, you'll find unexpected delights and touches that really add to one's travel experience.

Ro purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Ro chose New Orleans

This house is stylish and cozy and retains so much original historic charm. If you want to experience living in a New Orleans home with soaring 12 foot ceilings, pocket doors, and floor to ceiling windows, this home will speak to you. The location is great for returning New Orleans lovers and first timers alike. A quiet street tucked amongst the city's most desirable neighborhoods and attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ro and Seth were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcomed. The shotgun was charming, updated, very spacious and comfortable. The neighborhood was in a central location, a block off of Magazine, quiet and very convenient to the French Quarter and to the Garden District. We would definitely stay there again.

Great location, beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

A beautifully restored home, very comfortable for our party of seven. Owners were very responsive whenever we had questions or concerns, and super friendly. The home offers lots of free parking (a huge commodity in NOLA) ....

Beautiful details, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, swoon-worthy home with incredible attention to detail. On top of the gorgeous decor, Ro has gone out of her way to provide thoughtful ammenities from complimentary toiletries to travel guides.

Best of all, this was the perfect location. There are so many great gems within walking distance (coffee shops, Cajun food, museums, shops, the street car...I could go on).

Ro was always available to answer questions via text, but also allowed if our space to enjoy the company of our group. The next time we're in NoLa, we will definitely try to stay here again! Highly recommend!

Very clean and beautiful interior design with great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

I brought my family to NOLA for a conference. The property was close enough to the convention center for me to walk. My family was very comfortable hanging out during the day.

St. Charles was so close that we could go up for a trolley ride or a stroll to some cool restaurants.

The hosts were super responsive and accommodating.

the property was wonderful, just what was expected and even more! We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property in the lower garden district which is a perfect area to stay from my perspective. The place is beautiful, very clean and well maintained and the owners are very available if there are any issues. I loved the set up, my group loved the property and we would all stay there again anytime! One must realize that you are in the LGD, yet a close walk to CBD, garden district and more. Thank you for a perfect stay, we cannot wait to come back. Kitchen is terrific and love the master and outdoors as well.
